Vegan Parsnip Crisps: Crispy Crunchy Appeal

Crisps are normally made from potatoes of course, and then you have ones made with sweet potatoes, but these are very similar, albeit offering a slightly more unusual flavor. Parsnips are tasty and versatile. They can be roasted or used to make a mash, or they might go in a soup or stew.

Parsnips are lovely roasted and served alongside a roast, even a nut roast if you are going the vegan or vegetarian route, but they can also be used to make healthy recipes like the following appetizer. Or try grating them finely and adding them to pakoras.

Another use for parsnips is making them into vegan parsnip crisps, and you will find the taste and texture to be really good. Crisps are called that because they are supposed to be crispy and these come out really nice and crispy so you will be delighted with them.

At that time I had never even heard of a low carb paella using cauli rice because I was enjoying the real thing too much to deviate. Try as I might, I could never tire of this wonderful Spanish dish. Fast forward a decade and I still love that flavor but my husband is diabetic and rice is a no-no. So I wondered at this point whether .....
